Time to push the journalistic standards of BackTheTruckUp to their limits again. If you thought the article on pee jugs wasn’t bad enough, someone who shall not be named is begging for me to write about his new favorite incident…
When we say truckers haul everything, by George we mean it. We actually have to thank the sales team for bringing this to our attention, and were directed by that bearded host of What The Truck?!? to write about it. But I have journalistic standards so here goes!!!
Driver obliterates truck and trailer load of dildos and lube…
The helicopter news crew with KWTV in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, had the worst day ever when a massive spill of “adult toys and lubrication” occurred after a tractor trailer leaving a distribution center overturned on I-40 outside Mustang, Oklahoma. Jim Gardner, KWTV’s helo-news anchor grew a few gray hairs when in-studio anchor Lacy Lowery asked him what was scattered all across the interstate.
With a new definition to “rubber-necking” added to the dictionary, what followed has become the most watched video on the KWTV YouTube page. Let’s just say they will not forget this day for a long time…
I don’t think Ludacris meant this when he penned the rap album “Chicken and Beer”
Atlanta never fails to bring something absolutely horrendous every now and then. We have the cardinal sin of The South – spilled beer – and a trailer load of chicken goo to report on.
On Monday, when everyone was worried that the world was coming to an end (again) due to the possible railroad strike, dueling incidents caused the Atlanta morning traffic to back up more than usual.
Sometime before 3 a.m., a truck hauling a load of chicken guts, hearts, and other bulk from a processing plant headed to a dog food factory rolled over on the on-ramp from Highway 61 onto I-20.
The goop sloshed from the ramp to the median of I-20, causing a very disgusting mess for the Georgia DOT to clean up. The interstate was reopened around 9 a.m. after some front-end loaders and many refuse containers were put to work.
Spilled beer is a sin…
Not to be outdone, and yes, send for the priest, someone committed the cardinal sin of overturning another truckload of beer. That’s a high crime and misdemeanor down here where I live and in many parts of the country.
On Monday as well, around 7 a.m., the truck pulling a trailer load of Bud Light was involved in an incident with a pickup truck. The resulting wreck happened on I-75, near Cartersville, Georgia (where an Ahheuser-Busch brewery is located). The Werner trailer hauling the beer was ripped open, scattering cases upon cases of blue canned beer into the grassy median.
Luckily, road crews were able to clear the traffic lanes enough for morning commuters to rubberneck past the accident. Most of the debris and wasted brew was cleared up by mid-day.
